We will start on the Daniel P Davison Trail then take the West Loop Trail which connects to the Nassau-Suffolk Trail. We are going out and back on the same trail – will turn around at Stillwell Lane in Syosset. The hike is 3.5 miles round trip and should take about 1.5 hours. This trail is very popular so be prepared to pass people along the trail and have a face mask. The trail is also quite hilly so be prepared for a good workout. Sneakers or lightweight hiking shoes, water and a trial snack are recommended. There are no public restrooms at the Nature Conservancy.
